honorable decree from his royal highness, barack obama, we got rid of kings years ago, he has allege late testify work with, -- legislative to work with, not to gifforders. lou: he said it is easier to work without them, he said any deal too raise federal budget, has to include new tax revenues. not only do you have to raise the debt ceiling but you -- the republicans have to agree raise taxes. who house th has the gun to
of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th
, tracking poll, three day running average, 49% for obama. he was at 67% in the polls four years ago. 18-point decline from that. when operating is not designed to make it more popular and bring the country together. >> bill: now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently nra took out an ad saying president obama was a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards in other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging peoples' children into this. it's wrong z i think it's a means that makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues. that confront this debate. >> what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to nra. remember, he's from new jersey. a blue state. he's got to get reelected this year. he has a beef with the ad. i frankly think the under lying point of the nra line is accurate which is there is an elite in america comfortable
. president obama's legacy going forward. why his re-election is perhaps more historic, next. >>> four years ago plm 2 million people crowded onto the national mall in washington to watch the first black man take the oath of office, the 44th president of the united states. people came from all over the country and brought their children and in imaginations brought friends and family members who had not lived long enough to see such an occasion. it was a transform tiff moment in history, an undeniable point of racial progress but it wasn't post racial. the president himself recognized this early on. >> i have never been so naive as to believe we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle. or with a single candidate, particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own. >> the newspaper "the onion" also recognizes which is why they ran this rather appropriate post election headline, "black man given nation's worst job." so much about president obama is seen through the prism of race, how he won the white house, how he governed the past four years and the conditions under which h
.s. president says they plan to hire more than 100,000 veterans over five years. the program starts on memorial day. he says all vets without a dishonorable disharj are eligible. first lady michelle obama called the decision historic and says she will urge other companies to do the same thing. critics say wal-mart officials are trying to repair the company's image, after discriminations of unfair labor practices. be that as it may, rick newman is here, author of the book, "rebounders: how winners pivot from setback to success. i am sure what every veteran has been dreaming about is being a stock -- re-stocker at wal-mart. but >> i don't think that's why they went into the military, to stock shelves. it is a nice gesture by wammart. tell certainly is a good cause. their heart's in the right place. wal-mart has had controversy, recently, accused of cutting benefits, keeping people on part-time status so they don't have to pay for full-time status. will the policies be different with veterans? the you keep them on part-time status so they don't get benefits? or will you give them a better path to
250,000 new members, that's coming off an election year when it spent $19 million on campaign ads. >> much of that was against president obama. a lot of it was against democrats running for congress. >> had they spent that much money prior to that? >> no. no. this was a new development. >> reporter: the question now is whether the nra's history will take a new direction after newtown. >> if republicans refuse to bring anything to the floor even for a vote, we'll see that the nra really is still strong-arming elected officials. >> reporter: the nra would not talk to cnn on camera for this story, but a spokesman for the group points out the nra is not just picking up what it calls an unprecedented number of new members. the gun lobby is raising money as well for what it predicts will be an expensive and hard-fought battle on gun control. jim acosta, cnn, washington. >>> i want to bring michael and reihan back. that is amazing that the nra at one point was fighting for gun control, they thought it was appropriate and it has since become a much more absolutist organization. i'm curiou
appropriate post election headline, "black man given nation's worst job." so much about president obama is seen through the prism of race, how he won the white house, how he governed the past four years and the conditions under which he won re-election. there were quite a few people who believe president obama won the first election because of luck and timing because he succeeded george w. bush a two-term president who left america in dire straits and that just as obama's opponent john mccain seemed to be getting momentum the entire global economy crashed. precisely because obama's election the first time was and is viewed by a sizable majority of americans as a fluke or one off sentimental indulgence his re-election is all the more significant for what it says about american politics and the ongoing trauma of race. by 2016 a child born in the first hours of the 21st century will have lived half her life and her most formtive years with a black president. joining me at the table of ben jealous president and ceo of the naacp. julian malveaux author of "surviving and thriving" 365 facts i
are predicting gun control will be the big divisive issue in four years. despite the uproar over last month's massacre in newtown connecticut, many are throwing any chance of new firearm restrictions out the window, saying obama's proposals will not even make it to a vote on the house floor. that will leave it largely up to the states. we've already seen new york pass the nation's tightest gun control legislation. next up could be maryland where governor martin o'malley will introduce his own proposals this week. both states are home to potential 2016 candidates and we could see this trend keep up for any democrat who wants to be taken seriously during the next presidential election. >>> and think progress is looking into some ceos who want people to retire later. they're thinking of raising the retirement age up to 70 saying social security is no longer affordable. as think progress notes that's not the case. the program can pay full benefits for decades into the future and with a couple of very small changes, it could extend the solvency for the next 75 years. we'll be right back. show, t

-way collision that some speculate led to a deepening depression for 26-year-old aaron schwartz. schwartz was best known as the co founder of reddit, a widely used social news and entertainment website built around user submitted content. president obama even used reddit to reach more than 5 million voters in his re-election campaign. most of them young people. in his short live, he became a folk hero, pushing to make web content free. but with prosecutors pressing serious charges, schwartz hanged himself friday in his brooklyn apartment. his lawyer said he doesn't know what put him over the edge, but the notion of pizen time had him deeply worried. >> i know this case was weighing heavily on his mind and was a significant source of stress for him. >> the freedom to connect, like freedom of speech or like the freedom to murder. >> the case stemming from shuwater's passionate believe for a wide open, free internet. it dates back to july 2011 when he was indicted on charges of stealing millions of academic articles and journals from a digital archive at m.i.t. the charges could have landed

. a letter to president obama published an m.i.t. technology review a week ago was just as emphatic. it says, it is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late. end quote. european ngo, climate before them say climate change will zap the u.s. economy of over $400 billion annually by 2030. already they say it's stealing $1.2 trillion from the global economy each year and contributing to deaths of nearly 400,000 people. now, one hopeful sign here if you, chris, the cost of extreme disasters and catastrophes, natural or manmade, that went down last year. >> so one little piece of good news in the middle of all of that other concern. >> yes. >> it's a beautiful day here in new york. >> it is a beautiful day today. >> yeah. thank you so much, richard. >>> and that's going to wrap up this hour of "jansing and company." i'm chris jansing. thomas roberts is up next. >> good morning, everybody. topping our agenda, president obama meets the press. he's going to be holding his 37th solo news conference, the final news conference of his first term. just minutes

you fox news poll should the debt limit be raised again? of course it's been raised every year. the majority of you said only after major cuts are put in place. 69%. yes, it would be reckless not to raise the debt ceiling. >> which of course is president obama's position, 23% one there because he says this is like we have run up our credit card bill. this is like not paying your credit card bill. we have already spent that money so you have to raise the debt ceiling. some people say stop the madness. whatever the repercussions are stop it, cap it now. if we have to default we will. maybe we can skirt default somehow. seem like majority of respondents feel that way. >> 83% say spending is out of control. of that wonder i wonder how many have idea how big the debt is 16. it doesn't matter in absolute dollars this is the biggest debt that's ever existed and our credited rating has been down graded as a result of it? >> i remember as a kid i don't know elementary school or junior high when bewere talking about the debt it was something like 4 trillion. and our teachers asked us to
